On a tangential note, some of the motherboards have problems when
overclocked with only some of the SATA controllers. I'm running an Asus
AV8-Deluxe and ran into lockups during bootup using the VIA controller, but
after moving the drive over to the Promise 20378 (non-RAID mode, obviously),
no issues. It would never have occurred to try this me except for some
comments about this mobo and OCing on one of the OC websites
Anyway, to echo David's response, if a driver works when the system is
normally clocked, I would look to something other than the driver if I
started experiencing problems with OCing (for example, mobo BIOS updates).
